School budget passes, Cape Democrats choose Millett in District 30 State House primary

Cape Elizabeth voters handily approved a $28.5 million school budget for fiscal 2020-21, and Cape Democrats chose Rebecca Millett as their candidate for State House representative from District 30 in the primary election July 14, 2020.

Election results are unofficial as of 10 p.m. July 14.

In other races, Democrats from Cape Elizabeth favored Anne Carney as their candidate for State Senate District 29 in a three-way, ranked choice primary race to face Republican Stephanie Anderson in November. District 29 includes South Portland and part of Scarborough.

Cape voters also favored bond issues for infrastructure to improve transportation and internet connections.

Town Clerk Debra Lane estimated a voter turnout of 44 percent. The election, postponed from June 9 due to the coronavirus emergency, drew approximately 3,600 voters, 2,948 voting absentee. Those casting ballots on Election Day followed social-distancing protocols established at the polls, Lane said.
